Barnaby Monk noon, Dec. 24
Psycho Beach Party
By Charles Busch; directed by AJ Knox and Jenny Gardham. The Ocean Beach Ensemble Experiment.
Callbacks Monday, June 23. Rehearsals begin around July 21. Performances September 4 through 14.
Please prepare a one- to two-minute comic monologue, and if you are a singer, a few bars of a song (preferably from the '50s or '60s). There will be no accompanist, so singers should prepare to sing a cappella.
Though many of the characters are teenagers, we will only be casting actors 18 and over (due to adult themes). Casting is gender-flexible.
Note: The Ocean Beach Ensemble Experiment is a volunteer ensemble theatre, and we cannot guarantee pay. But we can guarantee a good time!
Synopsis: Chicklet Forrest, a teenage tomboy, desperately wants to be part of the male-dominated surf crowd on Malibu Beach in 1962. One thing getting in her way is her unfortunate tendency towards split personalities. Among them is a black check out girl, an elderly radio talk show hostess, a male model named Steve, and the accounting firm of Edelman and Edelman.
